Potomac River Paddle, Saturday, July 7, 9 AM

A former member
Post #: 34
For Saturday, the predicted weather forecast for our paddle location will be an abundantly sunny day, with a high of 90 degrees. The UV Index will be very high, so sunglasses are advised. The wind speed will be slight and negligible, as we will be in a protected area.

Please join us on a relaxing kayak and canoe trip. We will meet at the Shepherdstown Boat Ramp in West Virginia this Saturday at 9 AM. All are welcome. Below are the trip details.

We will meet at the boat ramp parking area at the end of North Princess Street in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, for a leisurely and scenic paddle. Please bring plenty of water and a healthy meal. The current therein is very gentle. We will go up-river for 4 miles,
take a break, and then return down-river for 4 miles, and the trip should last about four hours. On this beautiful stretch of the Potomac, one can go for many miles and see nothing but the splendor of nature.

Here are the directions for the trip's meeting point:

From Frederick, take Rt. 340 West (which will take you from MD through VA for a spell and finally into WV over the Potomac and the Shenandoah Rivers), then turn right at Rt. 230, then go over Rattlesnake Run Creek into Shepherdstown, then turn right on North
Princess Street, and go until it ends. You are on the city-owned public boat ramp. Stop before you get to the water. Godspeed.

On our web site, under Photos, Maps for our Voyages, we have a satellite map of the trip:­
